DRM continues to be a problem for consumers. When I purchase a product, I should be able to use that product for what it was intended. DRM does not reduce piracy, as pirates are continually finding ways around this process. In the end, the consumer suffers unjustly. I have a right to privacy and information that is taken about me without my control is horrible. If I choose to purchase a product legitimately, I deserve to use that product without information being gathered about me. Thank you.
